MSNBC host Rachel Maddow will be speaking at Sixth & I Synagogue in downtown Washington on April 28. Unfortunately the event is already sold out. But they may still honor media requests.
Maddow will discuss her book, Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power, in which she argues that American has become at peace with perpetual war. In a description on the site, the talk is described as follows:
“Maddow takes us from the Vietnam War to today’s war in Afghanistan, along the way exploring Reagan’s presidency, the rise of executive authority, the outsourcing of our war-making capabilities to private companies, and the plummeting percentage of American families whose children fight our constant wars for us. Ultimately, she shows just how much we stand to lose by allowing the priorities of the national security state to overpower political discourse.”
